Heads Up: “Amtrak Trains Cancelled without Notice”

“Dear PoPville,

I figured that it would be helpful to give people a heads up if it applies to them. I booked tickets home and back for the holidays through Amtrak (Northeast Regional), but my trip changed, so I went to modify my reservation. When I logged into the site, it turns out that Amtrak had canceled my ride back to DC, but I never received a notification about the cancellation. It turns out that they have canceled a number of trains that are running on the day after Christmas, but they have not notified anybody about it yet – my parents had booked a ride on a different train on the same date, and, lo and behold, they double-checked the site, and their reservation had been cancelled too. I’m not sure if they have canceled trains on any other days around Christmas, but I just wanted to let people know about this so that nobody ends up stranded around the holidays.”
